With the growing success of ACDC Dynamics, Savile Row was approached to design an extension to their current retail branch in Edenvale as well as a new commercial warehouse building situated in Cape Town, in order to provide a larger showroom to showcase their products.
Faced with the challenge of respecting the existing architecture in Edenvale, the design aimed to create a seamless union of old meeting new. The extension responded to the client's functional requirements whilst encouraging more focused customer and staff interactions which were previously limited because of spacial constraints.
The proposed two level extension will maximise visibility and introduce natural daylighting as well as improved ventilation which will result in uplifting the currently dimly-lit retail spaces. A structurally dramatic yet simple solution was implemented to enhance the overall building aesthetic thereby creating a modern and clean architectural response.
